Savan Group and its employees are dedicated to supporting our local community.
We believe that we have a social and economic responsibility to the communities in
which we live and work.
We have partnered with several non-profit organizations in the area and continue to do what we can to support those groups. Our approach to this outreach is to focus on the local social and environmental issues that are most urgent within our community. We work in and with the community, promoting positive social values, working to bridge gaps, and providing equal opportunities and assistance to those who need it. Our community involvement falls into two broad categories: support for the DC Central Kitchen and the DC Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. We support these organizations in one of two ways:
We foster a spirit of volunteerism because it benefits our business and our employees. Through our volunteer program, employees can spend 1-2 work days per year volunteering in their communities during customary working hours.
To encourage giving and to inspire employees to take a leadership role in our corporate social responsibility work, we have an employee matching donation program. We match employees’ cash donations to US non-profits charities at 100%, up to a specific amount per year. In the past, we have supported the following charities and organizations:
DC Central Kitchen
For more than 20 years, DC Central Kitchen has pioneered a new model of using food as a tool to change lives. They provide nutritious meals to our neighbors in need, equip unemployed men and women to begin culinary careers, and engineer successful social enterprises that advance our mission while creating good jobs for the people we serve. Through job training, healthy food distribution, and local small business partnerships, DC Central Kitchen offers path-breaking solutions to poverty, hunger, and poor health.

Salvation Army Angel Tree Program
Every Christmas there are children in the Nation’s Capital who do not receive gifts because their family is struggling and can’t afford the expense. Individuals and companies team up with The Salvation Army to help these families provide presents and clothing to their children! Before the holidays, individual children are matched with donors who purchase toys and clothing requested by qualified families, and The Salvation Army facilitates the delivery of these gifts. For more information, please visit http://salvationarmynca.org/angel-tree/
More information about each of these organizations along with their contact information is provided below:
